Vote for the best of our candidate bake-off

Charlotte 20 October 2016 1
Candidate Challenge

In two days, the election will be over and the kerbside corflute collection will have begun, but we’ll always have the memories of the RiotACT’s candidate baking challenge to remind us of how much fun the past five weeks have been.

You can select from and watch all the videos individually below, or go to our playlist on YouTube and watch them all, one after another.

A huge thank you to everyone who participated for welcoming us into their homes, coming up with an idea, cooking it up and sharing the results with us and with the camera. The challenge was open to all 141 candidates. 17 volunteered to take part, which is probably for the best given the potential damage to the waistline from such an event.

Who gets your vote for the Readers' Choice Award in the RiotACT's ACT Election 2016 Candidate Baking Challenge?

Criteria to consider include but are not limited to originality, creativity, effort, sense of fun, sophistication, whether you’d ever cook the recipe yourself and most importantly, relevance to the candidate’s vision for Canberra.

Taste is another factor, but only we can be the judge of that, and we’re carrying the extra 2kg to prove it.

If we have sufficient response, the winners in both categories will be announced on election night, so get voting!

[UPDATE: The judge’s choice was Jennifer Newman’s Chocolate balloons cake and the readers’ choice award went to Maryann Mussared for her lemon tarts]

Here are the contenders:

I haven’t watched all the vids yet, but I will confess, I got to taste a generous slice of Caroline Le Couter’s cake (I tipped her off to this challenge originally) and it was extremely delicious! I’m not just saying that because I am one of her campaign volunteers, you’ll just have to take my word for it that it was a really good tasting cake! Thanks to Caroline for saving a piece for me!
